We are an active group of people interested in the exploration and study of mines and caves in Britain, Europe and ... well anywhere actually!

Note: We are in the process of slowly changing the look of the website, but some of the pages are still in the 'old look'.

The work involved to replace the second plastic tube in Level Fawr with RSJ steels and packwalling has been completed. Several SCMC members helped Roy ferry the steels into the mine and the work was carried out over a number of visits.

  • Underground exploration can be potentially dangerous if you do not have the right equipment and skills. This is why you should consider joining a well established Club, who can train you and lend you equipment for your first few trips.
  • Have a look at our Links page to find links to other underground exploration groups, both in Britain and around the world.
